Easy GitHub Repository Tagging



Tagging a GitHub repository is pretty straightforward. Please see below how you can create the tag for the repo, push it to git, and delete eventually if needed.

Tagging git Repository

The steps below assume you are in the intended repo that you want to tag or delete:

# create
git tag -a <tagname> -m "I just tagged my repo with tagname"

# push
git push origin <tagname>

# delete (if necessary)
git push --delete origin <tagname>

Finally, once you tag the repository, you should see a new release of your repo under Introducing GitHub: A Non-Technical Guide by Peter Bell
